Dave Rogers

DAVE ROGERS has been hosting WADK's Open Forum since January of 2010. This lifelong Newporter brings a wealth of experience to our midday talk tradition.

A former Navy SEAL and combat veteran, Dave entered the political arena as the Republican nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives against Congressman Patrick Kennedy in 2002 and 2004. His political career continued as he worked in Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri's administration in 2005 and 2006.

Dave has also held several positions in the energy industry. His interests range from local, state and national politics to entertainment and sports. Dave's talk shows offer the consistent theme: "..we're all in this together."

Dave has been involved with "Travis, A Soldier's Story" for a few weeks. Here's some info he has talked about on The Open Forum.

The Story
Travis: A Soldier’s Story is a challenging documentary featuring the inspiring true story of United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne. Travis lost portions of both arms and legs as the result of an IED (improvised explosive device) on April 10, 2012 while on patrol during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. Travis is one of just five quadruple-amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive their injuries. Featuring powerful interviews and emotional reenactments from Travis and Kelsey Mills, and fellow soldiers who witnessed the events of April 10th, Travis: A Soldiers Story is an intimate look into the life of a wounded solider as he faces the unimaginable physical and emotional challenges of this life-altering injury. Travis’s story sheds light on the daily inward and outward struggles of our wounded veterans and the difficult rehabilitation processes they face; and Travis’s openness and incredible perseverance will challenge us to look at the way we deal with our own personal trials in life.
